Baker & Taylor Based on interviews with leading specialists as well as her own personal experience, an author frankly discusses menopause and hormone therapy and includes a series of recipes, exercises, and meditations designed to balance out-of-whack hormones.
Blackwell North Amer Cristina Ferrare shocked the country - and herself! - when she revealed something very personal on her live talk show, Home and Family: that over the last few years, she had experienced a lack of sexual desire. Her revelation prompted appearances on Oprah and Dateline NBC, and she began to receive letters, calls, and E-mail from hundreds of women who told of their own experiences and were desperate for more information. They, too, were going through a loss of libido and were glad to know they were not alone. When Ferrare went to her doctor, she found that a lack of testosterone in her body was a key reason for her lack of interest in sex, and the doctor prescribed a testosterone cream that put her back in the mood - and thrilled her husband. But spurred by her approaching menopause, she wanted to find out for herself how hormone levels affect everything in our bodies - and how everything we do and eat affects our hormone levels. Ferrare came to the conclusion that a natural approach to balancing her hormones made sense for her. Now Ferrare offers a frank, funny, informative, and inspiring personal account of what she went through - and what she learned along the way.
